So, once again I begin the challenging morning ritual of giving Roxie her meds. Yep, Roxie, the Japanese bobtail, is recovering from surgery and must take three different forms of prescription drugs. It’s definitely a challenge, and I am glad the reality television cameras are not rolling when I administer the medication, but eventually Roxie, after much hollering and screaming, takes her medicine. I think she knows it will make her feel better and extend her life.
There’s a lot of talk these days about how to solve this nation’s economic woes. There are a number among us who in the course of pursuing short-term greed have sacrificed long-term gain. Millions are jobless and devastated. Everyone is expressing outrage and pointing fingers. . Our political leaders have offered a myriad of solutions but don’t want to lose any ground for the 2012 elections. In scenes right out of Frank Capra’s 1939 classic “Meet John Doe.” Occupy Wall Street groups have sprung up all over the world. But in this country it should not be me against them. It’s U-S. Perhaps like Roxie it’s time for all of us to take our medicine.
